HNT: Ring

So I was at a loss to really get a good pic for this week in line with the Olympic theme. It wasn’t that I couldn’t think of something, but rather that I knew I wouldn’t have the proper time to excute something more involved. The only thing I could come up with was something playing on the Olympic Rings. Then I started thinking about my wedding ring and how it is such an interesting symbol. I don’t put much into my wedding ring. I like wearing it because it has me tagged. I don’t wear it all the time (it tends to come off with my watch and work clothes at the end of the day). But then I also thought more about how in the past it has been something of a taboo. To catch eye contact with people and then see them look at my ring. Or I’ve also had some guys who find out that I’m married and bi get off on the idea of the ring. And there have been times in the past when I’ve had requests that I wear it during…. um… oh hell we all know my past. When I’ve fucked with guys alone there have been a couple times where it was requested that I wear my ring (we won’t delve into the fucked psychology of that; the past is past). I do find it interesting how a little piece of metal can have such a big and small impact. So I thought I’d let my ring be the featured player for this week. Of course, I couldn’t let it be completely about the ring.

  1. I never put that much thought into how others would think about it during those kinds of encounters.
    Happy HNT Sexy,

  2. You remind me so much of a good friend of mine and you even look like him in this photo! I absolutely love your metaphorical play on this week’s theme. The result may not have been involved but it is dangerously sexy. . . I guess I’ve got a fucked psyche too. Hehe.

  5. Found your blog as one of the more interesting ones today while looking for other blogs on bisexuality. Thought it was pretty ironic that I just posted about a gymnast and here you had a post about the 2 possible definitions of rings.
